That doesn't mean it came from the US. It's pretty well-known that there is a simian version of the virus, and at some point it made the leap from one species to the other. Since the US is kind of scarce on monkeys that are native to the area, it's more likely it started where the monkeys did--Africa. AIDS also takes some time before you start seeing significant symptoms, so it may have spread quietly and undetected to a part of Africa where tourists from the US could catch it.

That's my explanation, caringhk. What's yours? AIDS didn't just appear out of nowhere.

That monkey-monkeying things did not appear in the AIDS council answer.

As it is STATED in the AIDs council -  1st detected in gays.

Anyway whoever butchered monkeys are playing monkeying around.

Never said it wasn't first found in the gay community. However, it had to come from somewhere. And if there's a simian version of the virus in Africa (which there definitely is--I was reading about it a couple weeks ago in the news), doesn't it make sense that that's where it would come from? And you don't have to have sex with the monkey to get infected--all that needs to happen is blood-to-blood contact, and that can happen in a few different ways.

But really, you haven't answered my question. If AIDS didn't come from Africa, where did it come from?

caringhk, see the China Daily article at http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/china/2006-05/30/content_603496.htm regarding the origin of AIDS in Cameroon.

Regarding gays and lesbians, I don't much care how people connect their plumbing.  There are lots more interesting aspects to people.
